The past year has been heaven for Star Wars collectors. Tons of new merchandise based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens has flooded the market in the months prior to and following the release of the seventh film in the franchise, so much so that you can't go anywhere without seeing The Force Awakens-branded cups, wafflemakers or toys.
However, while plenty of extremely cool Star Wars collectibles have already been released, these soon-to-be-available replica props from the new film take the cake.
Coming under the Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition label, these replica props based on iconic helmets and weapons from The Force Awakens look too good to be true. There are replicas of Rey's staff, Kylo Ren's lightsaber hilt, Chewbacca's wookie bowcaster and even Darth Vader's melted and deformed helmet. Each piece looks identical to its in-film counterpart, making these a must-have for Star Wars fanatics.
Each replica will only be available in limited quantities for a limited amount of time, with Finn's bloodstained Stormtrooper helmet and the Darth Vader mask limited to numbers as small as 500. The models will come with custom display pedestals for each replica and will actually be packed in branded wooden crates inspired by the real crates used to ship props to the film set.
Alas, all of that coolness doesn't come cheap. Each prop varies in price, but all of them cost a pretty penny. Rey's staff, for example, will set you back $1,250, as will the two available replica lightsaber hilts. Poe Dameron's X-Wing helmet costs $1,500, while Kylo Ren's costs $2,000. Chewbacca's bowcaster is $2,500.
The real bank-breaker is, of course, the disfigured version of Darth Vader's iconic helmet (he is the face, or helmet, of the franchise after all). That particular replica will set you back a whopping $3,500. That, however, seems like a small price to pay in order to properly re-enact Kylo Ren's speech as seen in the film.
